Ready to decorate cookie kit for kids



Kids can make their cookie masterpiece and you don't have to bake

Easy cookie decorating kit comes with everything

A couple out in Texas was living their dream with four kids and a bakery shop. Then the pandemic hit. When the pandemic forced them to close their storefront bakery in the summer of 2020, they had to lay off 11 of their 14 employees. So they started delivering DIY cookie decorating kits from the backs of their cars – and Color My Cookie was born!

HVP recently received one of these kits and I invited my grandkids over to decorate them. The box that came in the mail was the Princess Magic Cookie Decorating Kit. Our kit came with everything we needed to make these cookies beautiful. Bonus, the cookies are outlined in black and all they have do is paint like they would color in a coloring book.

The box was very well packed, nothing was broken and it contained:
  • 6 cookies to decorate
  • 1 edible paint palette cookie & edible watercolors
  • 2 paintbrushes & cups for water
  • Icing, sprinkles, & edible decor
  • Link to an online cookie decorating tutorial for your kit taught by a pastry chef
My grandchildren are three, eight and thirteen and they all chose to participate. We got 2 houses, 2 stars on sticks and 2 princesses. The boys took the houses and stars and my granddaughter was quite happy with her princess cookies. 

The 13 year old declined to paint but had a great time putting the icing all over his cookies which he promptly devoured. No pics for Grandma for those cookies.

My 8 year old grandson did a combination of both icing and painting. He and my granddaughter shared the six color paint palette surprisingly well. I did manage to get a shot of one of his cookies (with a bite out of it). 

My 3 year old granddaughter spent the most time on her cookie. She was very patient and meticulous about her cookies. I got a great shot of her second cookie. She also ate her first one.

All three kids said they had a good time and that the cookies were delicious. The boys declined to use the sparkly stuff that was in the box (too girly) and my granddaughter did not use them either, but they are beautiful and edible.

All in all I declare this cookie kit a success. You can find these kits on the Color My Cookie website. Prices are $12-$14 for a mini-kit with 2 cookies and $39 for the larger kits which contain 6 cookies. The kits are adorable and your kids are sure to love it. You can also order edible and sparkly metallic paint for $5 and an apron for $15.
